Fountain's Abbey, Yorkshire, England


A pictures showing what is left of a monastery after an earlier devastation.

And the consequences of the curse that was put on the perpetrators.

"Of the 43 noble families implicated with the king at the time of the suppression of the monasteries, 32 are now extinct, of which 15 had become extinct within fifty years. Members of the 9 families that are not extinct have been plagued by misfortunes too numerous to list here, and cannot be said to have 'thrived' ".
